The Serious Player in Half Format

With the Rapida 75 PRO, Koenig & Bauer presents many of the features and capabilities you will find in the medium format press range. The control concept is the same as in all Rapida presses and our philosophy is to bring the levels of automation, ease of use and productivity you would expect to the half format size.

User-friendly and Productive

Designed to run up to 16,000 sheets/h and with configurations up to 10 units, The Rapida 75 PRO offers a flexible and an exceptional value entry point for half format customers. 

With all the automation features you would expect to allow industrialised printing capability the Rapida 75 PRO has make ready, productivity and quality features such as:

  • State-of-the-art plate changing system to minimise job to job transition
  • Presetting options and job changeover (JobAccess) software to move seamlessly between jobs
  • CleanTronic washing systems allows quick washing and colour changes between jobs
  • QualiTronic colour control constantly monitors and corrects colour to ensure maximum good sellable sheets on the floor
  • Double coating, UV or conventional drying options offer flexible inline finishing applications

Productive and economical

Production on the Rapida 75 PRO allows considerable energy savings compared to other presses. From start to finish, it’s technical solutions are geared to low energy consumption.

One example is the environment-friendly VariDryBlue dryer system in the extended delivery. Two heater units warm the process air to the drying temperature preselected at the console. Optimised hot air nozzles then spread the air over the whole surface of the substrate. The air from dryer modules 1 and 2 is only partially saturated so is recirculated for further use in module 3 and in the swan neck. In this way, the energy consumption for drying can be reduced by up to 50 per cent.

An optional energy management function measures the energy input at individual points of consumption offering even greater transparency.

More pages per sheet

The maximum sheet format on the Rapida 75 PRO is slightly larger than usual for a half-format press: 53 x 75 cm as standard, and even 60.5 x 75 cm as a special format. The standard print format for straight production is 51 x 73.5 cm, and this increases to 58.5 x 73.5 cm with the special format.

In practice, the enlarged format means that printers who occasionally produce in US letter or typical magazine and catalogue formats can now plan 6-up layouts. Two extra pages on every sheet compared to other presses in this format class.

Even this small detail can boost your productivity by 50 per cent. Another reason to consider the Rapida 75 PRO for your B2 printing Needs.

Designed with a small footprint in mind

Despite the larger sheet format, the Rapida 75 PRO occupies minimum floor space.
Designed from the outset knowing that many customers have smaller premises and need to maximise working space. Thanks to its compact design, it boasts a much smaller footprint than many other half-format presses. The obvious advantage for you: More room for work in progress, and easier access to the feeder and delivery.

The reduced footprint naturally has a further benefit, namely the positive effect on your space costs – and the ultimate impact on your cost centre rates. Print production on the Rapida 75 PRO is extremely competitive in every respect.
